A function aimed at bringing people together to celebrate friendship will raise funds for two charities helping disadvantaged youth in Tasmania and abroad.
The Friendship Ball is the brainchild of Care for Africa co-founder Dianna Butler. She wanted to celebrate unity in the community and collaborations between local and international aid agencies.
The ball, which will be hosted by the South Launceston Rotary Club on March 13, will bring people together to raise money for Mrs Butler's organisation and the JCP Empowering Youth Program.
"Will Smith, he works with empowering young kids off the street and Care for Africa is about young women in the communities of remote Africa - so there is a little bit of synchronicity between the two programs," Mrs Butler said.
